video size differs in tracker from player

I try to analyse a video in mpg-format.
If I start the mpg (720x576 pixel) in a player (vlc, windows media player) the player starts in
widescreen format - no distortion with a width-to-height ratio of approx. 1.8.
If I import the video in Tracker it shows me a width-to-height ratio of approx 1.3 (disortion).
This makes it impossible to analyse distances and sizes.
Is there a configuration item to adjust the width-to-height ratio in Tracker?

Thanks and bye
